No, it’s not mine. haha but for my BFF’s bachelorette party. This is actually my first time attending a bachelorette party. Previously everyone I known who got married never had one. Or maybe they did but did not invite me. lol.
( I actually have a lot of images, scroll down!)
This bachelorette party included a lot of girls who are close to my BFF, but I am not close to all of them. & I always felt like I am sorta anti social where I only stick to people I know... but you know what, I think it’s kind of the same for everyone else. You can clearly see how people naturally divided into their own groups. lol.
Anyways. So a bunch of us girls arrived friday night, first we went to the Drai's club
Some girls got drunk already, and I was really out of the loop on what’s going on. One of my friend grab me to join these guys but I had no idea if she knows them of not. I felt like I had to protect her, since she seems pretty drunk, but she was still able to tell me that she actually knows them. ( although I did not really believe, since she was drunk... lol) The guys keep telling us to go to their table, and since the music was so loud, I couldn’t tell which table and just follow the pointing and gesture. when we got to one table, this girl told us that we need to leave because it’s HER table. and I thought. WTH? Do these guys even have a table or not? Turns out that their table was the table behind, and instead of going up the stairs, ( which is right next to us) they want us to climb through other people’s table... which is lame. Before I could figure this out, the security was yelling at us to get out, which I was a bit freaked out since my friend was already kicked out once for being too drunk....
Finally when we got to the guy’s table, I was still concerned and want to drag my friend away, because I don’t really believe she knows these guys. & she was still drinking more.... Eventually I did drag her away, and we finally re-grouped with the rest of the girls. The thing is, the rest of the girls joined a group of strangers table, which I did not know about. I assume someone knows someone here or something..... We were all together and the guys were trying to talk to us. One of our friends is very protective and keep telling the guys to get away. Eventually the guys got mad and told us to leave... since we were hogging their table but not talking to them.. lol... I guess it could be a different situation if any of us were available.... After all this, we still stayed a bit, n then we decided to leave.
ok yeah, I know no pictures here ‘cause I didn’t really take any. & when I was checking out my friend’s photos I also realize I am missing in a lot of photos.. lol.. oh wellz.
The next day, we went to encore beach club. It’s pretty nice, although a lot of people and no where to sit or to put down our stuff. You can check in your items but we still need a place for towels, shoes and such. Someone ask how much are those sitting areas and we were told it’s $5000. like WTF, this club don’t even have professional dancers and stuff and they are charging $5000 a table? I guess you’ll have to be really rich to book and table, and people will come to you because you have a table and that means you are rich.. lol.
Since it’s a club it’s of course too crowded, and pools are not meant for swimming, instead people are here to look “hot” I guess. Which is fine, but I think the club atmosphere could be a bit more high, since most people are not really moving with the music that much. There was some fun when some girls decide to go on the stage to dance. =P
Afterwards we all went to the hotel, rest and change for dinner. We went to Delmonico Steakhouse. The bride to be was wearing all white with a crown, and the rest of us wearing all red. It was funny because we didn’t know there is a “ Miss Asian” pageant thing going on at the hotel during the same weekend. & people keep mistaking us for being the pageant girls.... haha.

The filler bread was really good, I ate a lot of it!
The menu is on the expensive side, for me anyways. I am the type of person who likes to eat multiple small dishes in one meal, rather then just a piece of large steak. So I decided to order the ahi.
This is actually an appetizer, so it’s quite small. I guess my previous experience with the ahi appetizer at the Yard House give me unrealistic expectations now. I think the ahi at the Yard house is at least 5 x bigger then what I have here. The dishes’s image I saw on yelp was also unrealistic I guess because of the angle. Even though I wasn’t full, I think the ahi did taste great.
Afterwards I went gambling, I didn’t really win anything, just re-learned how to play the dice game. lol, I only play one game in vegas and I always have to relearn it when I am here. Previously I actually always won something, not big, maybe like $80. This time... nothing. lol. I am a true believer with luck when it comes to gambling, when you don’t feel it... don’t bet on it!!!
At the end of the night, we went to high roller ferris wheel. The ride is 30 minutes, which I knew would fly by because us girls just want to take pictures the whole time.

waiting for our cart
The cart actually never stops, so you have to run in! Which was quite a bit scary since us girls were all dress up n in heels. I previously looked at their website, and it was suggesting that we could have party in the cart, so I was assuming that we would have the cart to ourselves, especially since we have a large group of people. But no, instead, we were randomly included with two other parties. The thing is, it was late at night, there was barely any people... and the cart behind us was EMPTY.... so I don’t understand why we didn’t have the cart to ourselves... the other group was a group of guys celebrating a birthday I guess. They got really high seeing so many girls and try to talk to us the whole time. The 3rd party was just a quiet couple. $35 per person for a 30 minute ride, I really don’t recommend it. The view was nice at night time, but not able to have our own cart was quite lame. My friends and I did have fun taking pictures though. Although I think I really need to upgrade my phone now, all the photo looks so horrible compare to my friends phones. lol
Although here are some views for you to consider:
On the third day it was time to go home. I already split up with my girlfriends and just hang out with my hubs. I was happy that I finally get to sleep in a bit, since I feel pretty exhausted from the previous days, especially riding to vegas and now going back is not fun for me. After checking out the hotel we decided to go to a sushi buffet :
Sushi House Goyemon
5255 S Decatur Blvd #118, Las Vegas, NV 89118
All the rolls I ordered are half order.
Forgot the names, but I just read the description, If it has salmon, tuna, avocado or cheese... I love!!!
My first order was a bunch of rolls, because I was stupid n forgot that nigiri sushi means the sashimi on top of sushi rice, which is what I really want to order. I didn’t realize that until the first round of sushi rolls, so then I order a bunch of nigiri sushi, but really much less then what I want!
So before we ordered the Nigiri Sushi we ordered the poke’s!!
This is with Tuna and Octopus. So Good! Although the veg on the bottom is a bit salty. But yeah I haven’t had poke forever, so I really love it. I wanted to order 10 orders haha.
Here comes nigiri sushis!
I ordered Cajin albacore twice I think. it’s soo good ^_^
I also ordered a bunch of side dishes, which I love and really enjoy. I really like the fried calamari, at first when it came I didn’t know what it is because I never seem one like this! It was really yummy and we ordered a lot!
I never seem fried calamari look like this. it’s SOOO GOOD. I LOOOOVE IT
I think the only dish that we ordered and was a disappointment was the takoyaki, because it is usually my favorite japanese dish, and if it’s available I would always order it. However, this place’s takoyaki was not very good, very little squid inside the ball.
Strawberry Mochi Ice Cream
One thing I love for this buffet is the dessert! Usually you don’t get ice cream at lower end ( price wise) buffets I think. Especially Japanese Ice Cream? No way! I had to order all of them that I wanna eat! I ate three ice creams ... soooooo satisfied!
Red Bean Ice Cream
Tempura ice cream
Overall I really enjoyed the food here though and I want to come back when I am in Vegas again! (Although please note that this place is actually quite small. ) & I guess that pretty much concludes the trip, we went home and it was so tiring having fixed butt position for hours until we reach home. Until few days later I was still kind of sore. haha.. I am old now... but makes me wanna travel even more... ^_^
